Synopsys Delivers VDK For Renesas RH850 MCUs

Stocks in this article: SNPS

MOUNTAINVIEW, Calif., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Highlights:

  • New VDK for Renesas' RH850 MCU accelerates software development, system integration and test for a broad range of automotive applications
  • Seamless integration with tools such as Mathworks' Simulink® product, Synopsys' Saber and Vector's CANoe enables virtual Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) and fault testing
  • VDK can be customized to represent any RH850 MCU including the F1x, E1x, C1x and P1x series with the Synopsys Virtualizerâ„¢ tool set

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today announced the availability of the Virtualizer Development Kit (VDK) for Renesas RH850 MCUs to accelerate software development, system integration and test for RH850-based automotive applications such as body, powertrain/hybrid and chassis/safety control. VDKs are software development kits integrating design-specific virtual prototypes with software debug and analysis tools. The new VDK is the first commercial deliverable from the Center of Excellence collaboration between Renesas and Synopsys. The VDK enables automotive engineers designing RH850-based electronic control units (ECUs) to start developing, integrating and testing software months before ECU hardware is available, resulting in higher product quality and reduced development cost.

"The availability of the Synopsys VDK for Renesas' RH850 MCU marks a key milestone in our long-term collaboration and provides developers of RH850-based applications a productive software development solution," said Akihiko Watanabe, Department Manager of Automotive Electronics Core Technology Department, Automotive Solutions Business Division, 1 st Solution Business Unit at Renesas Electronics Corporation. "As software content and complexity in automotive ECUs continues to grow, our customers can take advantage of leading virtual prototyping technology that has been adapted for the RH850 family, so they can start their software development tasks earlier and accelerate system integration, test and validation."

Renesas' RH850 MCUs are an advanced family of scalable, 32-bit microcontrollers that have been specially tuned for the performance and reliability requirements of a wide variety of automotive applications such as safety, body and engine control, driver interfaces and infotainment. The VDK for RH850 MCU includes reference virtual prototypes representing a microcontroller, including single and multicore versions of the RH850, timers, memories, communication blocks such as LIN, CAN and Ethernet and analog and error control modules. The initial release of the new VDK includes a virtual prototype following the F1x MCU memory map. The virtual prototype can be modified to represent other RH850 MCU series and to create additional VDKs, such as E1x, C1x and P1x, with the Virtualizer tool set. The VDK for RH850 MCU readily integrates with tools such as Mathworks Simulink, Synopsys Saber, Vector CANoe and third party debuggers, enabling system integration and test using a virtual Hardware-in-the-Loop environment and fault and coverage testing in support of the ISO 26262 safety standard.
